Funds will support a literacy program that hosts a number of classes, including Bible teaching, health and elementary math. This education makes it easier to acquire jobs within the villages.
Projects like this give training to young Christians in the churches which give them a responsible job in the village and protect them from going to big cities where they are exploited and face all sorts of temptations.
Reading and writing in one's own mother tongue opens new opportunities to villagers. With the broken down costs below, a group could adopt a certain portion of the program or the support of one teacher for six months.
